Kasha is not only the Russian name of any grain or cereal e.g. buckwheat, semolina, millet, it also refers to a cooked dish which resembles a porridge or mush. Although Kasha has been a staple food of peasants for hundreds of years it is also a dish for special occasions especially feasts which celebrate the completion of the harvest, weddings and even funerals: all are incomplete without kasha.


It can be sweet or savoury,  served at breakfast, as a side dish or even as a meal in itself. It can be plain or cooked with other ingredients: raw egg can be stirred into it,  onions, mushrooms,  stock - in fact, almost anything can be and has been added to kasha at some time or another. In leaner times if there wasn't enough meat to go round,   it would be chopped finely and mixed into the kasha so that a small piece of meat would go a long way. All in all, a very versatile dish.


Below are some examples of Kasha but do experiment and add whatever you have to hand.
